Eminem's latest album is barely a month old and the Detroit rapper is already back in the studio.
Eminem was in his Detroit studio Sunday, Jan. 21, with early mentor Dr. Dre and Mike Will Made-It, according to Instagram posts from the latter. One was a photo of Made-It by the mixing board, quoting lyrics from Eminem's "Lose Yourself," the other a short video in which Made-It and Dre announced "real hip-hop here" before Eminem pops in to declare "fake hip-hop here," pointing to himself.
It's not known what the trio was working on, but during a "fireside chat" on his Shady 45 SiriusXM channel Eminem noted that he and Dre had been working on material that was not finished in time for the "Revival" album, which came out on Dec. 15 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. "There's a couple of tracks that I do have that I might revisit and check them out," Eminem said during the broadcast. "There were two of them. I'm sure that at some point in the future me and Dre are gonna connect again and hopefully be able to be as intertwined as we were on past projects."
Eminem has announced several festival appearances, including the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival during April, the Boston Calling Festival in May and the Governors Ball Music Festival and the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival during June.
